Granville Island, Vancouver, originally uploaded by Alan Stanton.

A quick post to let those here in British Columbia know that the 2008 Educational Technology User’s Group Spring Workshop, May 28-30, is featuring the theme of creativity this year. Appropriately, the venue is the Emily Carr Institute for Art + Design on Vancouver’s Granville Island (a favorite spot for locals and tourists alike, designated by the Project for Public Spaces as “One of the World’s Great Places”).

I had the chance to meet with the organizers and see the venue last week, and was most impressed. The planners are determined to try something new and provocative, and based on what I heard I think this will be a very fun and worthwhile event.

Throughout the workshop I will be conducting an ongoing experiment on getting the participants to create mashup artifacts — probably with a few tools drawn from Alan’s epic 50 Ways project. Scott will be at the meeting too, and I’m hoping to enlist him as a co-conspirator.

    Dear Friend,

    The Baan Dek Montessori is hosting a discussion dedicated to the advancement of Montessori education for the success of the twenty-first century and hoping you could contribute. We have established an online community to discuss various topics that concern the importance and relevance of Montessori education today, and for the future, and would greatly appreciate and welcome your participation. Our initial discussions can be found here and if you or other members would like to recommend further topics or contribute to one of our scheduled podcasts please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to a lively and stimulating debate and hope we can once more start the radical educational movement that Montessori enacted.

    Best wishes,

    Bobby + June George
